Will you check in at the Democratic and Republican conventions? Use Foursquare at these events, and you’ll be able to unlock badges developed specifically for the events. In a new partnership with Time magazine, Foursquare will get an incredible amount of exposure and interaction. Further, Time will use its website to ‘broadcast updates from reporters, newsmakers and VIPs as they check-in on Foursquare as well as a visualization of convention activity, so political junkies not attending the conventions can stay current on all the on-the-ground action.’
Right now, Foursquare is one of the hottest start-ups on the web, with a sky-high valuation and a pile of venture capital funding.
